There are a few basic rules in museums. The first: don’t touch the art. The second: don’t take selfies while touching the art.
At a museum in Milan, Italy, a student reportedly broke that second rule: he climbed on a statue dating back to the early 19th century to take a selfie and caused the statue’s left leg to fall off. The discovery was made on Tuesday morning by the staff of the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera, one of Italy’s most renowned academic institutions, and it was apparently also recorded by security cameras.
So this happened. Use it as a reminder to please not touch the art! (Selfies at the Blanton are okay so long as you’re a safe distance away.)
My body just felt legitimate pain seeing this. I can’t EVEN…
THIS IS UNFORGIVABLE.
oh my god
